Nothing is Useless to Its Source. {Poem}

Nothing is Useless to Its Source.

Some words require to be spoken
As some feelings require to be felt,
Some facts require to be broken
As some fears require to melt.

Some stories require to be written
As some stories require to be gone,
Some tongues require to be bitten
As some tears require to be spawn.

Some loves require to be fallen
As some loves require to be raised,
Some kisses require to be stolen
As some eyes require to be amazed.

Some mouths require to be silenced
As some throats require to be cut,
Some acts require acts of violence
As some eyes require to be shut.

Some fires require to be stricken
As some fires require to be lit,
Some thoughts require to be unwritten
As some thoughts require to be fit.

Some poisons require to be swallowed
As some poisons require to be spit,
Some dreams require to be followed
As some dreams require to be quit.

But neither peace nor war required
As neither love nor hate,
Neither caress nor touch desired
Could ever be a waste of fate.

And my desire is God’s desire
As source requires to see its course,
Neither my longing nor my fire,
Nothing is useless to the source.
